The Message in the Message

Today marks 1 year since my Mother's passing. 
1 year...amazing.  

I still catch myself thinking she is still here physically and that I can just call her and tell her what's going on in my life. 

I would call her and say "Hello Mother" and she would reply "Hello daughter".   I still her hear her voice in my head. 

She called me her "darling daughter" from time to time.   So yesterday when I came across a story of a Mother and daughter's conversation about getting older I felt it was a message she was sending to me.
The last passage caught my attention:

"I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you... my darling daughter." 

Thank you Mom for reminding me of how you loved me.  I love you and miss you so much.

One of my Mom's favorite flowers Lily of the Valley-"return to happiness".  They grew wild in our front yard in NY when I was a child.

From A Distance...

From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
And it's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves
